As we were staying for a week we booked a separate bedroom unit, No 4, which was nicely decorated, not overly spacious, but had table and chairs to enjoy the sun outside at the front in the morning and at the back in the afternoon. Staying again, for a shorter period, we would book a studio - No 6 looked...

I've stayed at Colonial court many times over the last 10 years for work and with the family. The place is always outstanding, with every amenity you could want, especially the free fast internet which is very useful when working away from home. Easy to get to and Kris&Tracy are always welcoming. They keep coming up with new and innovative...

They went to great lengths to ensure I had all i needed throughout my stay and offered useful advice on establishing myself here in Tauranga. I can't thank them enough for their...

We spent 7 nights at the Colonial Court in Tauranga in February during the 2012 Oceania Masters Athletics Championships. The room was clean and tidy, and well cleaned and restocked each day. Everything worked and the kitchen was well equipped. The wifi was free and brilliant, and there was never a problem in connecting online. Kris' hospitality was outstanding, from...

We found Colonial Court Motor Inn ticked all the boxes. It was very central, well furnished, clean and quiet. Kris was a great host and helped with all our questions about Tauranga. I would be happy to stay there next time in Tauranga and would highly recommend it for comfort and value.
